Safeguarding & COVID-19


Dear Colleagues, 

These are unprecedented and uncertain times for all of us; we all have to work to find unusual solutions to unusual problems. 

Safeguarding remains ‘business as usual’ in Northamptonshire with services adapting their offers to meet the current needs.  Safeguarding needs to remain as a priority in people’s consciousness as incidents of domestic abuse are increasing and vulnerable adults and children are hidden during this time. Please remember to think "Family".

Please refer to the Safeguarding section of the Primary Care Portal where useful information and resources are being added all the time (see links below).

For any advice or support the team are continuing to function as normal, please email  or contact Nikki White on 07771 343725.
